Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Hear what the Lord in vision said,|
And made his mercy known:
Sinners, behold your help is laid
On my Almighty Son.
2. Behold the Man my wisdom chose
3. High shall he reign on David's throne,
4. My truth shall guard him in his way,|
With mercy by his side,
While in my name through earth and sea
He shall in triumph ride.
5. Me for his Father and his God
6. My first-born Son arrayed in grace
7. My cov'nant stands for ever fast,|
My promises are strong;
Firm as the heav'ns his throne shall last,
His seed endure as long.
